    I know you all will have this answer. I have noticed these pins that have beads on the top and I can't seem to find them anywhere. Do you all know what I'm talking about? They are not the pins you can by in the store. I think they have to be handmade. I tried to post a picture but it won't work. Thanks for any help you can provide. :)

    Maybe they are old hat pins. They are a little bigger than regular pins. Thanks

    I have some very old pins from my grandmother that were hat pins. Some have glass beads. Other pins are none other than corsage pins from when DH would buy me corsages for b-day, m-day, etc.
    As far as fancy pins, anything that fancy would be an old hat pin.
    Do you have pics for reference we could see?

    I bought the metal part of the hat pins themselves from the bead shop, then added my own beads - personlized pins.... Love them. Very simple.
